There is no support for X220 fingerprint reader in Windows 10 https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht103535#addition

 

Actually X220 is not supported for Windows 10 at all.

Puppy,

you are right.
But it works w/o issues, from the ms image AFAIK

FPR authentication to turn on the laptop might not work though.

fixed the 2nd problem too by installing lenevo fingerpoint software for the t410 for windows 8.1 64 bit. fingerscanner works fine now can even wake up and start with fingerprint with the software.

My x220 fingerprint sensor works fine with Windows 10 and logs me in with no problems.  I use the Windows 10 built-in fingerprint settings rather than the Lenovo ones.  Maybe that will make a difference for you.

Basically you need to install the Hotkey driver (in Windows 7 mode) and then you can switch on BT with Fn+F5.

Bartie, I have the same problem with bluetooth on Windows 10. I can see the Bluetooth button in the settings menu but I  can't enable it.

Which version of BIOS did you update it? I have version 1.40 now. When I tried to update to 2.11 or 2.21 it doesn't work. It doesn't start from Windows. Maybe because it is UFEI. 

 

Edit

 

Bluetooth works with BIOS v. 1.40 with windows 10. I got it to work now.
